Ha is also in the compound of Buddha
There is no ha in buddha. The syllabification is bud + dha, not budd + ha.
To put it another way, the three consonants in बुद्धा are ब, द and ढ. The last gets romanized as dh, but the h is merely to show that the consonant is aspirated. It doesn't represent a separate consonant.
Thanks for pointing only the mistakes Bhanta and not the overall post, but your study in linguists is incorrect, and again adds to the problems in translations. As I said it was loose etymology, because the real etymology is in sound, as I said compounds are not fixed, they are expanding and very deep, where each letter eventually will carry its own power but will not be in contradiction or divided by each other, they expand in the same substance. So I cant accept your translations.
The original languages are all in one constant flow. likemewritingasentancelikethis. You cant break it up in grammar and verbs, nouns and consonants with the original Sanskrit and pali or other ancient languages, English yes, but that doesn't mean anything. They are unbroken, expanding citta into the subtle macrocosm deeper than the subconscious mind, leading to full enlightenment.
Linguistics are very nice, but with sound opening in citta, which are usually activated by sadhus, or sri guru, sri vidya, who are one undivided force, they will not remain as usual langue, they have to expand, expansion only happens in akash, chid akash, spacial sound consciousness, in samadhi and dhyana. Sanskrit has its roots in sandhi, this cant be translated as its the prime language in true prajna states.
In fact there is no grammar the way the western scholars have translated it, its another manufactured way , due to trying to explain the system to a foreign brain, it may have some limited use.
The real way to understand these things will be by sound vibration, sound is nama, na and ma~ma is devi and light is rupa~deva, they form cosmic compounds in the citta which expands in citta bhavana, to produce enlightened states, opening one petal in the lotus one by one.
But for some reason the empirical brain wants to fit the ocean in cup, or all of space in teapot. This isnt directed at anyone just general comments. Dhyana for meditation as Dh~held and ya manifestation and na cosmic sound vibration of sri saraswati devi, who teaches veda in para vak, on her vina, vi~ inner na~cosmic sound vibration.
Non of this can be brought into English grammar, we can only make attempts, some of it maybe helpful to come as a study, but usually scholars fail because there is no bhavana in the citta Bha~internal feeling, va~cosmic voice and na~ cosmic sound or para vak, highest divine sound.
These are taught and transmitted in the ancient ways by sadhu, sa~so ham or Aham trans ~personal identity of unified oneness, dh~transfixed or held u~ in transcendence, using mediums of nada and joyti, sun and moon lineages in the macrocosm, to connect to Buddha awakened state which are finally liberated by devadatta who shatters all forms of monasticism for Supreme liberation, buddha, surya and chandra are powers of the avadhuta dattateya, dev is div transcendent, divyajnahrideyprakash. I cant write sanskrit on my keyboard.
It will always be an oral tradition, never a literal or tradition of grammar, the sanskrit and pali are better or r to be recited as musical notes that elevate the mind out of written concepts and intellectual understanding which becomes can dogmatic and fixed. All texts are brahmavada.
This should be common knowledge to Bikkhus which means ones whose mind has turned within, not monks.
I am not in argument with you, whatever i write will be with some faults, because of the limitation of the dead language English in comparisons to ancient languages which were vibrations of divine sound and light., and also attempts to bridge the gaps between Vedanta and Abhidharma and bring these two traditions back to their natural synthesis. But some are desperate to keep them divided with man made schemes and isms, they are the real one dividing sanghas and traditions, their fate according to suttas is not good, if we are to believe them. All sentient beings are temporary, each one of us should consider that carefully, the powers of dharma will be totally concealed and protected by sri mahakal.
